Anyone have any experience with the Hondaline GL1800 Fog Light Lens Protectors?

I'm headed for Alaska later this year and I understand that it is a good idea to protect any glass that you can. My chief concern is that the sales info sez that you have to drill some holes to install these. Are the holes in places that show? I hate to think of these protectors as a permanent installation.

Actually they are about the neatest looking on a bike (Hondaline). Easy to install and easy to remove for cleaning.

Of all that I have seen and dealt with, the Hondaline wins all the way, even though they are a bit pricey!

I installed these over my EC Platinum lights. Very satisfied. Easy to take off and clean. You will drill 6 large holes in the lower cowling. Measure carefully and mark with felt tip pen. I use pieces of 1/8" (3/16"?)foam as a spacer to mark. Worth the extra bucks.

try this

I have cee-bailey orange fog light covers. They really stand out in traffic,
even work better than my modulator.

i screwed mine on with a screw on each side with a toggle bolt on each side , works for me, been on for over 3 years with zero problems.

Thanks for the info. I guess that the real question now is are the holes that you drill terribly noticable with the protecive cover removed?

sounds like a good idea ... anybody got pictures ?
I'd sure like to see them before I start drilling holes.

TIA

Here's another option..............3M headlight armor in 25 mil thickness which is also available for foglights.

Comes in several colors and also includes clear. The clear is not visible at all and looks like stock headlights or foglights.
They have specific kits for the headlights. They don't have the foglights listed but if you call them and tell them the diameter of the foglight they can give you the correct part to order.
